Lyrics of Köln, January 24, 1975, Pt. II C (Live)

Child Of Tomorrow

Where is the child of tomorrow
gone like the child of today
innocence replaced with sorrow
they've taken her childhood away
they've taken her childhood away
They taught her their rights
and they taught her their wrongs
things don't turn out as they'd planned
for though she objected, they made her play along
now she knows things she can't understand
she knows but she can't understand
Yesterday's child ran with wind in her hair
played in the frost and the cold
almost a woman she has to take care
but she's just eleven years old
shes's only eleven years old
After the child of tomorrow
here's the woman today
knowledge replaces the sorrow
and pride takes her toment away
pride takes her toment away
In holding her down, they taught her to fight
showed her the way and the how
and she knows she'll win
because she knows she's right
and more tha nthey bargained for now
she's more than they bargained for now
Yesterday's child ran with wind in her hair
played in the frost and the cold
now she's a woman and they'd better beware
no more will she do what she's told
no more will she do what she's told
